Netanyahu, Indian PM Modi meet Moshe Holtzberg

Nine years after he lost his parents and home in a horrifying terror attack in Mumbai, Moishy Holtzberg was embraced by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Indian Prime Minister, currently visiting Israel, met Wednesday afternoon with the young boy, who survived a 2008 terrorist attack that killed his parents and several others at the Chabad Jewish center in Mumbai.

Holtzberg, now 10, was taken hostage along with his parents, Shluchim Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg HYD, along with 7 others, by terrorists who raided the Chabad House in India's largest city.

In a photo of the meeting in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Moshe's grandfather Rabbi Shimon Rosenberg are seen looking on as Prime Minister Modi warmly hugs Moshe.

Modi also met Moshe’s Indian nanny Sandra Samuels, who managed to escape with him from the Nariman House which came under attack by terrorists, and his grandparents Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg.

“Dear Mr. Modi, I love you and your people in India,” Moshe Holtzberg said in a short speech in English. "Always remember my parents," he said, to applause.
